Interests

My research focuses on understanding the role of cortical inhibition in visual discrimination. I use optogenetics to activate PV+ interneurons in the primary visual cortex and simultaneously record calcium transients using 2-photon imaging to study local neural interactions while mice perform a visual discrimination task.
